However, all teams still have a ways to go.
The build team is still figuring out how to support the entire robot. It's big, it's not that bad, and it's pretty ugly. (At the moment.) The builders are also continuing to work on the pulley system, as well as perfecting the claw systems. The cars on the pulley, which contain the claws, must work with each other, and that is currently what is being worked on.
The electronics team is putting together all kinds of boards. For last year's robot Chuck and for our final robot for this year. They're always busy with stuff. Tiny zip ties, crimping, wire stripping, and wago tooling galore.
The programming team, unfortunately, is on standby. Without a completed robot, they cannot work on any code. They've soaked in a lot of lessons from programming Professor French, and they are DYING TO CODE A ROBOT. DIGGING THEIR GRAVES AS WE SPEAK. RISING FROM THE DEAD TO TELL US, "uaaaauuuugggghhhh," which translates to WE NEED A ROBOT NOW.
In other news, we had another Pronto birthday on day 21. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KATE!!!
Day 21. Wow. Three weeks have past. Are we in panic mode? Yes. But we are calm. Because the build season is officially old enough to buy booze. And now you know why none of my writing makes any sense. Just kidding. That was a joke. Stop doubting me.
Party hard (by building a robot), Team Pronto!
